Vicki

Thanks for the help. Two obits: John Edward Gerboth, died 1 October 1960; Laura D. Gerboth, died 18 October 1982
Dale

Dale,
Attached are the obits for John and Laura Gerboth. [See obits online for these obits] They are buried in the Blackwell Cemetery, south of town in Block 171 along with their son Billy Mack [Death Dec 26, 1928] and also a E D [Elenora Dormalee-from sexton records] Ashes I don't have Elenora's date of death, but the opening of the grave was May 28, 1999.
I looked for Billy Mack's obit, but the years 1927-1929 newspapers microfilm are not included in the microfilm collection at the library.
Also listed in the Blackwell Cemetery is a Florence Fay Lafferty [Jan 25, 1913-May 25, 1986] and Lee Lafferty [Sep 14, 1910-April 25, 1974] which are possibly their daughter and her husband. I did not find any listing for a Sylvia Smith.
Listed in another part of the cemetery are a Kenneth [died Aug 3, 1999] and a Susie [died Nov 9, 2001] I don't know if these are your family or not.
I found no other Gerboth listed in any of the other information I have on hand.
I might note that the Ponca City IOOF, St Mary's and Oakgrove Cemeteries inventories have not been completed as of yet and there might possibly be some Gerboth's listed there.
Vicki

Attached are the pages from the book of colonial clergy pedigrees. Remember that these genealogies contain no documentation and may not be correct. You should verify them as accurate before entering them in your family history. I do not know if you can obtain the papers submitted by individuals to this society as you can with the DAR. This society may have a website that could give you that information. [Pages are available on request]

GREER

Donna Stueve [princesssuzy@msn.com] Jan 2004

I was in hope that maybe you could be of some help, I was looking for Marion Greer born June 12, 1888 in Iowa but died in Ponca City, Oklahoma September 1975. His date of birth matches what I have on him, if I'm correct is the son of my Great-grandfather's sister Mary L. Greer. Trying to find out any information I can, where he is buried and did he have a family, was he married, maybe there is an obit out there for him, that will tell me that information. I got his death date from the SSN site.
Thank you for your time in reading this email.

Regards,

GROSS

Mary Peters [maryinballard@msn.com] June 2007

Hello Fellow Genealogists

I am looking for an obituary for James Lawson Gross who died 26 Aug 1915 perhaps in Blackwell, Kay Co., OK. In 1910 he was in Weston, Kay Co., OK. In 1900 he was in Blackwell. His wife was Louisa and his son was John Wesley Gross. They came from Indiana.

One of his cousins has a memorial card so we know the exact date of death, but we do not know where.

If you are able to find an obituary, please let me know how much I should send you for a copy.

Mary Gross
If you looked in the newspapers for James Wesley Gross, that is all that I know to do for the person person sending the query.
I checked the only other source I had from Blackwell, the Fyffe Funeral Home records, but unfortunately, he was not in that record. I did check the cemetery book and did not locate his name there, nor was it in any other cemetery in the Weston TWP area. The family could have shipped the body back to his original home where the rest of the family was born, or they simply did not put up a grave stone.
I thought that there was still some family in Blackwell with that surname, but I checked the telephone book to no avail.
Sorry, Loyd

GROVES
 Jenise Brantley [jenisetb@cox.net] November 2011

How & where would someone find a death notice or where they were buried in Ponca City. Does the newspaper have archive Obits (1965)? Are the cemeteries on line with names in cemeterey and death date.
Looking for Ellen Marshall Groves, B: bt.1924 D; 1965.
Thanks,
Jenise Brantley

Ellen R. Groves b. 19 Feb 1924 d. 6 Nov 1965 is buried in Resthaven Cemetery
Along with her husband
William L. Groves Jr. b. 3 Jul 1920 d. 28 Jan 1987
They are in Section D Lot 120 Space 13 & 14
Their funerals were handled by E.M. Trout Funeral Home in Ponca City.

There is also 3 other Groves in Resthaven by names of
Charles E. Groves 1925-1990
Thelma G. Groves 1925-nd
Thelma L. Eaton Groves 1924-1972

Evidently Charles & Thelma G. are husband & wife and are buried together but in a different part of cemetery, which is also true of Thelma L. They all may not be part of your family but thought I'd include them in case.
